Our goal is to make people want to sing and express themselves while having fun, by mainly targeting “amateur” students.
We take “amateur” students and their learning seriously. While we offer them a quality environment and prefer to use a playful approach, we still require that they meet certain criteria.
We contribute to increase their ease and self-confidence and stimulate their creative momentum.
We wish to highlight their individual abilities while respecting their authenticity and their uniqueness. To this end, we use different forms of expression as well as improvisation.
We also aim to foster a certain sensibility and curiosity. We tackle varying repertories, different trends in current music, divers forms, styles and creators.
We encourage interaction and exchanges. We cultivate a sense of collaboration and teach listening skills. We create opportunities to sing and play with others and support transversal activities and collective creations.
We give special attention to stage work and seek to transmit a liking for vibrant entertainment. We organize performances to show our students, within as well as outside Catalyse.
We wish to stay in touch with the realities of the performing arts trades. Most of the teachers working for us are pursuing an artistic career as well as teaching.
We transmit to our team a way of teaching that is original and ever evolving, with follow up supervision.
Our space is outfitted with professional equipment, regularly updated and serviced. Our facilities are used by artists for internships, reecordings, shows, and other performances.
We are open to any ethnic, musical, linguistic contributions while framing ourselves within a Francophone setting.
We also offer multilingual programs, notably in French and English.
We support community action, notably by encouraging projects for people of all ages in collaboration with other associations and by looking for ways of opening our activities to a wider population, avoiding all forms of discrimination.
Our efforts to stimulate creative imagination seek positive day-to-day applications. By inviting our students to develop their creativity, we hope to impact today’s world.
